two other israeli aircraft. israel denies losing any aircraft. egypt is trying to stop this war before it is too late. cairo's intelligence chief is spearheading talks to end the violence. but on the border, peace looks like an unlikely prospect. our senior international correspondent, ben wedeman joins us now between the border between israel and gaza. ben, ground war, are we about to witness that? >> reporter: i don't think immediately, don. i think there's still time needed to get the israeli military ready for a ground invasion. keep in mind that gaza is an area just twice the size of washington, d.c., with a population of 1.5 million people. any military force that goes in there has got to contend with the possibility of a lot of civilian casualties and a fair amount of resistance, from hamas fighters. now, what we're seeing here on the border are intense preparations, all night long. we've been watching as big trucks carrying tanks, carrying armored personnel carriers have been going up and down the road. a lot of soldiers in this area. the israeli government has yet to sa

stuffy nose. thanks. that's the cold truth! >>> a special assembly in egypt is rushing a vote on a final draft of a new constitution for that country. all at the same time, as protests are going on outside against the president of that country. and why is it that they're rushing this draft? word is that the constitutional court has a plan to rule this weekend on whether to just dissolve that assembly completely. some of the assembly members have walked out, saying they're angry. they're accusing islamists of trying to impose their vision. president morsi has faced some very, very tough criticism since he granted himself massive powers until a brand-new constitution is drafted. he declared last week that there is no court anywhere in that country that could overturn anything he decides. if the officials pass the draft today, though, it will go before egyptians for a popular vote in 15 days. and if that is approved, president morsi is going to lose a lot of those extended powers. all of this as images like this play out, and these are not good for egyptians and they are not good for

-fire are being brokered by egypt, turkey and qatari officials. israeli defense forces targeted a media building in gaza, aiming at four senior hamas operatives they believed were inside. and two people died. it is not clear if they were the ones designated as the hamas targets. hamas, which grew out of the muslim brotherhood, seized in our gaza in 2007. since then, the group has become increasingly militarized. the death toll stands at 100 in gaza including women and children. and three in israel. any others have been wounded on both sides. israel credits its anti-missional defense system known as the iron dome funded by the united states for its low number of deaths. cnn's frederick platkin was live when the system intercepted a rocket midair. >> there, over in the sky, you probably won't be able to see it here, there is an interceptor missile taking off now. that's the iron dome interceptor. if you saw the flash in the sky, that was a rocket coming out of gaudia that was just intercepted right now. >> despite back and forth rocket and missile launches, there is a behind the sce

so-called siege of gaza to be lifted. those are the controls over the borders of gaza with egypt and with israel. they want an end to targeted assassinations, an end to israeli military operations within gaza. whether these -- and i spoke with one official from hamas today who told me that, you know, there are contacts with egypt, they are passing messages back and forth, but at this point he says he sees no imminent cease-fire popping up anytime soon. obviously the palestinians, hamas, and fatah as well will pay proper deference to ban ki-moon and any other official who wants to discuss this situation here, but really fundamentally the problem is between gaza and israel, and all those who come and try to help, if they're just coming to visit, express sympathy as some are doing, that's not going to change the situation on the ground. >> as you just said, 800 wounded. how are the civilians overall holding up there? >> reporter: well, to a certain extent they're accustomed to this. gaza in one form or another has been a place where there's been fighting, clashes, protests, occupation g
